Example - http://gyazo.com/e5b...a915895e5436f1d then I get this error http://gyazo.com/8cf418bdf34e82d668d8d1e6c5c2b2fa . I downloaded cnc online thinking it could somehow fix the download but I get Unable to Launch Generals(Or any other game) How can I fix this?

Unfortunately I have no idea as this is not directly related to our launcher/server, but maybe someone else can help you.


If not I suggest to visit the official support for your game edition.

"To know what question we may reasonably propose is in itself a strong evidence of sagacity or intelligence. For if a question be in itself incongruous and begs for uncalled-for answers, it holds, sometimes, besides embarrassing the proposer, the disadvantage to seduce the unguarded listener into giving absurd answers, and we are presented with the ridiculous spectacle of one (as the ancients said) milking the he-goat, and the other holding a sieve beneath."

1) Run the TFD installer as admin.

2) Install Generals and Zero Hour through the TFD installer.

3) Download and install TFD unofficial patch 1.03 rev4.

4) Get GenTool

5) Launch Generals / Zero Hour and go to Multiplayer -> Online

6) Use your Revora forum account e-mail, your C&C:Online password (NOT your Revora forum password!!!!!!!!) and your desired nickname.

7) Click Log In.

Clean your disk and run the installer as admin. Maybe that helps.

Gain access to CNC Online servers by using GenTool for Generals and Zero Hour.



"GenTool provides enhanced game controls and optimizations to maximize your online gaming experience. Additionally it comes with three anti cheat solutions for Generals and Zero Hour. The program is easy to install and is fully functional with C&C Generals 1.8, C&C Generals Zero Hour 1.04, Generals Deluxe Edition, The First Decade and The Ultimate Collection."

And if none of this works, please remember that we are not offering support for these games themselves, but for playing these games online on our server.


In other words, you might find better help through Google.

No fuel left for the pilgrims

Additionally, you may find, once you have succeeded in your installation, that it is better to start Generals and Zero hour with GenToolinstead of the launcher.   You don't need the launcher if you do it that way.  Just install and start the game normally.
